Fenders are the same. The hood will bolt on....but there is a design difference in the style of the hoods. As far as the grill and headlight area....these are different. But if you have everything from the donor car then can bolt it all up. In other words, a Cavalier headlight setup won't fit with a Sunbird grill. You have to swap it all over.
